MF DVDs... on a MF Plane!

Well, I am packing all my crap to shlep off to Louisiana for work.

Lo and behold, I can't find my DVD case with all my in-flight entertainment. That's when it hits me. I left the GDMF thing on the plane my last flight. There was this cool little slot thing near the seat belt and I stuck the case in there because it fit perfectly. Of course, I didn't think to check said slot when I was leaving the airplane. I was also in an engaged discussion regarding unchecked police powers with the passenger next to me, so I forgot all about it.



Now I know how LTL feels about losing his iPod on the plane. What really sucks is that some of the DVDs are part of sets, like Battlestar Galactica, or even worse, some of my Pilot Training DVDs that cost a crap-ton. Now begins the slow process of buying it all back again.


I have a motorcycle addiction... and I get my fix elsewhere.

Shreveport. Doesn't really look like the cultural capital of the south.

Re: MF DVDs... on a MF Plane!

I doubt you don't need the pilot training DVDs, I did mine easily without. Just got a good textbook and read it.

Re: MF DVDs... on a MF Plane!

Not to kick ya when your down but, why not just rip them to disk (as in .avi the vob's) and save battery life and prevent loss of them while at it.

I have 6 or so full length features on my laptop using <3.5gig, and best I dont have to worry about waking up and rushing off the flightwithout my dvd case.

I've just lost enough **** to the airlines so I try to travel as 'densely' as possible now.

why put off today what you can wake up late and forget to do tomorrow.

Oh, I have passed the written, no problem. Just would have liked to have not lost them.

Yeah, I have contemplated doing that in the past. This just gives me all that much more of a reason to do it now.

Whatever. I lived in the south for years... you can't fool me!

There are plenty of gems down here. Shreveport is just not one of them.

Yeah I got learnt before DVD's were poppin, I lost a thing of 24 CD's once in a similar situation and swore 'never again'.

With DVD's, depending on your HDD size you can also compress when you do this and not really notice the quality if your just sitting on a plane.

I also got an external notebook batt from APC to make sure I would never be without power

I pretty much only fly American, who has power plugs on most of their planes. So at least I have that one covered!

Re: MF DVDs... on a MF Plane!

you're allowed to have copies of dvds you own. make copies and bring them. you can always just make them VCDs to save money.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

They even let the commoners have power in the back of the plane too.
